Combined treatment of photosensitizer and gene therapy in nanoparticles for oral cancer treatment (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Yih-Chih Hsu

Paper Abstract

Human squamous cell carcinoma is the major type of oral cancer. Traditional methods for human oral cancers treatments are surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Because photodynamic therapy is a noninvasive alternative for oral cancer therapy. A novel photosensitizer was first constructed in nanoparticles, for photodynamic therapy. Oncogene silencing RNA was encapsulated into nanoparticles to silence oncogene expression. Two treatments were combined for cancer treatment.Results suggest that the combination therapy could be a potential treatment to develop for human oral cancer in the future.
